Opening Talk of the Exhibition "Sylvia and Silvio"

Posted on behalf of Omar Feraboli

EXHIBITION "SYLVIA AND SILVIO"


The exhibition is about Sylvia Pankhurst and Silvio Corio, frontrunners in the campaign for women’s vote and against fascism and will run from 27 November to 16 December 2019.


One hundred years ago, as the Representation of the People Act was extending democratic rights in Britain, in Italy a threat was about to emerge that would destroy democracy and pave the way to the events leading up to World War Two.


Sylvia Pankhurst, her partner Silvio Corio, and their circle of friends in Soho, were among the first to raise the alarm against fascism.
